Dr Panagiotis Angeloudis was appointed by the UK Transport Secretary Rt Hon Chris Grayling to serve at the Expert Panel of the landmark Maritime 2050 review exercise.
During 2018, the panel worked with industry, academia and policy makers to support the design of a government strategy that maintains the country’s leading position in global shipping industry.
The final report of the review can be found at GOV.UK.
The review set out the challenges and opportunities to allow the government and the UK shipping industry to plan for the long-term, encourage economic growth by giving certainty to investors. It particularly focused on the digital advances which can help make shipping more efficient, and the role that digital services will play in the years to come.
At the time, Dr Angeloudis said:
“It is an honour to be appointed to the Maritime 2050 Expert Panel. The UK is in an excellent position to lead on opportunities for the global shipping industry, given its long maritime heritage and business ecosystem. Imperial’s Centre for Transport Studies here has a long track record in Maritime Transportation and through this appointment will inform the activities of the panel.”
